README!

In order to run Common Knowledge you need a server (we recommend Ubuntu 12.04 at this point) that is able to run the database (MongoDB), Rollcall (https://github.com/educoder/rollcall/wiki), a XMPP server (Prosody or Ejabberd), and the REST interface for the database - Drowsy Dromedary (https://github.com/zuk/DrowsyDromedary).

Drowsy Dromodary, Rollcall, and the Agents require Ruby 1.9.3 to be installed.

Using Grunt to do the Grunt work

We want some JS files to pass JSHint, have coffee script that needs to be compiled into JS, and SCSS files that should be transformed into CSS. We use grunt for this.

Install the grunt command line interface (CLI): npm install -g grunt-cli

Running grunt on the command line will say that grunt is missing stuff.

The dependencies for gruntare added to the package.json file so the install should be easy by issuing (in the ck folder)

npm install

Once the install is done (without errors) you should be able to do all the mentioned tasks by issuing (in the ck folder)

grunt

Try removing a ; in the mobile JS files and you should get a JSHint error.

Agents

Make sure you have Ruby 1.9.3 installed and add the users eventlogger and choreographer to Rollcall. Make sure to use the hashed password in the daemon.rb file. Furthermore, make sure that the mongo database works fine and can be called by typing "mongo" in the console.

To start the agent go to the common knowledge folder (in a terminal) and change into the agent folder. Now type bundle exec ruby daemon.rb

to stop the agent type: kill cat pids/ck.pid
